As longtime residents of Cobb County, we would like to thank County Commissioner Helen Goreham for three terms of service to the residents of west Cobb. When our two young families moved to west Cobb in the late 1970s this part of the county was very rural, traffic was light, and trees outnumbered stoplights.
As west Cobb became more populated in the 1980s and ’90s it was imperative that development be responsibly managed. When Goreham took office her priority was to ensure that west Cobb residents were the focus. She protected our neighborhoods from overly aggressive development. Instead of a strip shopping mall, we have the Avenue of West Cobb; instead of a shopping/entertainment center we have green space and a future park. And our now busy streets are lined with sidewalks that keep our community connected and our residents active.
Thank you, Commissioner Goreham, for maintaining the quality of life in west Cobb that we can now share with our grandchildren. We hope that the future commissioners share your vision and values.
